    The 20 teams for the playoffs

    Here is my guess

    Here is my guess how it will turn out
    * =auto bid
    I know you don't have to have 7 but that is pretty much the unofficial policy

    Big Sky Conference: ewu*
    Montana (I think they get it done against msu at home)
    montana state

    Big South Conference: Liberty* (stony brook instead if they beat them)


    Colonial Athletic Association: Delaware*
    William & Marry
    New Hampshire (plays towson next week for their 7th dI win)
    Umass (has to beat a moderate rhode Island at RI to get in)
    And NO Nova (nova has to Del at Del to get 7)
    And NO Richmond (has to beat Wm at Wm to get in)

    Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference: Bethune-Cookman*

    Missouri Valley Football Conference: Northern Iowa*
    North Dakota State
    And No Western Illinois (has to beat UNI to get 7)

    Northeast Conference: Robert Morris *

    Ohio Valley Conference: Jacksonville State*
    Southeast Missouri State

    Patriot League: Lehigh

    Southern Conference: App state *
    Wofford
    Georgia Southern (yup gutsy call but a W over furman makes 7 and a win over app)

    Southland Conference: SF Austin *
    McNeese State

    What do you all think? How do you see it happening?

    Heads up - due to tiebreaker rules Liberty would have to beat SBU by 40 or so to take its autobid. I'd say that bid is very much contested atm.

    Oh, those are some odd tiebreaker rules. Good to know.
